It used to be that Camberwell was an overlooked area of South London, perhaps even neglected when looking for an area to set up home.

The history of Denmark Hill Station dates back to 1865 and the station underwent significant restoration work between 2011 and 2013. Another hugely important piece of Camberwell history is King’s College Hospital, which has been located on the present site since 1909. Both the station and the hospital provide important services today, creating a strong link between the past and present in the local area.

The Maudsley and King’s College Hospital, there are vital facilities on your doorstep in Camberwell, and while hopefully you won’t have to use these facilities too often, it is comforting to know that they are close by if needed. Camberwell has long enjoyed an arty reputation with an art college, part of the University of the Arts London.  You’ll also find that Camberwell plays host to some of the most attractive streets in the whole of London, with many people adoring the Georgian houses and tree-lines pavements of Camberwell Grove.

Camberwell Green provides a great area to relax and socialise in while it is also perfectly situated for the town centre. There have been some notable developments in Camberwell of late, with the local library and children’s playpark now being seen as a major hub for the whole community.

This part of London will always be associated with the creative and arty crowd but there is a lot for everyone to enjoy in Camberwell. If you’re looking for guidance about this property market, Brixton Property Blog, in association with Kings Accommodation, are more than happy to help.
